WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates will return to his hometown in November to address the annual meeting of the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce.

It will be the second Wichita appearance this year for Gates, who is also a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He was on hand in May when the Kansas National Guard renamed its intelligence complex at McConnell Air Force Base in his honor.

The chamber's meeting will be held at Century II on Nov. 12, coinciding with the national observance of Veterans Day. The chamber plans to honor area service members at the gathering.

Gates is a 1961 graduate of Wichita East High School. He is currently chancellor of the College of William & Mary, where he earned a bachelor's degree in 1965.
